About Us

A Degu posing in a glass Degu World.com was created by a team of Degu lovers who wanted other pet enthusiasts to treat their animals with the care, attention and knowledge they deserve. Having bought up a range of species of animals both small and large, I found Degus to be one of the most intelligent, inquisitive species I have come across. With the lack of a comprehensive, professional site about Degu care, and all other websites being made by hobbie websites lacking the correct information, pretending to be vets or researchers when upon asking they are actually 16 year olds using some free web space with no real knowledge of the species, Degu World.com was born to provide information, knowledge, and a community for Degu lovers around the world. With constantly updated information as when it is made available, Degu World hopes to be a key resource for owners of these brilliant pets. I hope you enjoy this site as much as we have enjoyed making it. If you would like to contribute to the website please send us an e-mail with suggestions.

We are not vets and do not claim to be, and do not provide any medical advice that can not freely be found in the public domain. Any websites which do that are not created/ run by a qualified vet are putting your pets at risk with very word they type. Would you ask a random person in the street to diagnose your child?
